On October 2, 2012 at 3:15 pm, Corporal Jens Pattis with the Idaho State Police conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 84 at milepost 30, near the Linden Road underpass in Canyon County. Corporal Pattis stopped a red passenger car for exceeding the posted speed limit. Corporal Pattis made contact with the driver, identified as Roberto Solario, 32 of Nampa. Corporal Pattis subsequently asked Solario to step out of his vehicle to speak with him further at the roadside. Corporal Pattis spoke with Solario briefly, at which point Solario fled from the scene of the traffic stop on foot. Solario ran into the westbound lanes of Interstate 84, where he was struck by a 2000 Ford F250 pickup, driven by Nicky Adams, 64 of New Plymouth. After the collision, Solario was transported to the Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise for treatment of injuries he sustained in the collision. The Idaho State Police is continuing the investigation.
